NCC does not offer a degree in Music. Students may opt, however, to include music courses as part of the GE Core Curriculum. From Introduction to Music to Fundamentals of Music and Applied Music, students have the opportunity to train in basic musicianship or to study privately with a music professional. Students also have the opportunity to perform in the NCC community chorus. NCC's goal is to provide quality training and have music provide an overall enhancement to the GE Core Curriculum requirements.
The choral group focuses on performance, the development of technical and practical skills, and total enjoyment of both sacred and secular repertoire. From rehearsals to performances, it's an environment set up for students to succeed and enjoy. Students who enjoy piano may also opt for Introduction to Piano, which is designed to develop basic keyboard and musicianship skills including technique, sight-reading, harmonization, accompanying, music theory, and playing various piano repertoire.
